From the Principal
Dear Graham Families:
It has been a difficult week for everyone with the devasting situation at Oxford High School. Our hearts are broken for the families. Please know that we are taking every precaution to keep your children safe. All doors at Graham are locked and everyone must ring the buzzer at the front door to gain access once the secretaries verify who you are. If you have any questions regarding safety, please reach out to me.
Michigan Department of Health & Human Services has announced that children ages 5 to 11 are now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. Please visit Vaccines.gov for more information.
We no not have school next Friday, December 10th.
Remember, it takes a village to raise our children.

Parent Pick up
In order for the parent pick-up line to run as safely and efficiently as possible, we ask that you please stay in your car and move down to the furthest possible spot to pick-up your child. This will allow for the maximum amount of cars to pick up at the same time and will help for a smooth, quick transition. Staff is on hand to help direct traffic and keep the students safe. Please be respectful and look to them for direction.
If you need to get out of your car to assist your child or if you would like to meet them at the door, please park in the parking lot, cross at the crosswalk and meet them on the sidewalk.
Thank you for your understanding. Your assistance is greatly appreciated!
Substitute Teachers Needed!
Happy Birthday Graham Stars!
Parents, if you could send in a backup mask or two in your child's backpack, that would be helpful. We have a lot of incidents where the masks get dirty or the strings break. Thank you!
Busy Bee is open at Graham!

Medication must be kept in the office. Students must have documentation signed by a doctor on file in order for medication to be administered at school. Over the counter medication cannot be administered to students without a note from a doctor as well.
If your child is sick (fever, vomiting, covid-symptoms), please do not send them to school. We diligently try to prevent the spread of illness. If your child goes home from school sick with a fever (100+), they must be fever-free without fever-reducing medicine for 24 hours before returning to school. This standard is set by the Oakland County Health department.
